How It Works
Speed Networking is the business version of Speed Dating. However, speed networking events are intended to allow business professionals to share contact information and business cards with other business professionals with the purpose of growing ones contact base.
At a Speed Networking event, all participants are seated either in pairs or in groups, and each participant has approximately two minutes to introduce themselves and their business, share their business card, and mention who their perfect referral would be or what they are looking for (i.e. JV partnerships, collaborative partnerships, etc.).
These introductions are timed and when the bell rings it is time to switch and to move to the next seat and start the introduction with the new potential contact. No uncomfortable or awkward introductions, no glancing at your phone hoping it would ring so you can end the conversation, no awkward silences.
Speed Networking eliminates all the awkwardness and feeling uncomfortable as there is not enough time for any of these feelings to come up. Your only focus will be on making new contacts and expanding your networking circle.
Come prepared with your 60-second elevator speech so you can easily describe who you are, what you do, and who you help, if a few clear sentences and bring lots of Business cards.
There will also be time in between Speed Networking Rounds to network and have conversations with those you would like to get to know better.
This is a fun way of networking and meeting new business professionals in the El Paso, TX area.
It is time you expand your circle!
